Do you work with persons who live in other than Florida?

Yes, and no. Your state’s laws concerning out-of-state medical counseling are what determine whether Kim Rose Dietitian can work with you or nor. We will determine this during our discovery call. 

Do you provide single sessions?

At this time Kim Rose Dietitian works with clients for a minimum of 1 month and a maximum of 3 months. This will allow for optimum results.

Do you take my insurance?

Kim Rose Dietitian is out-of-network with all insurance companies. Upon request, for Florida residents only, Kim can provide you with a superbill. A superbill is a form  you can submit to your insurance company for possible reimbursement. She accepts FSA and HSA account cards. 

Do you see clients/patients in your office?

At this time I am only seeing virtual clients. All meetings are conducted on a HIPPA secure, encrypted  platform  you can log into using your cell phone, tablet or computer. 

Do you offer meal plans?
How do virtual appointments work?

All virtual appointments have one initial 60 minute consultation. All follow-up sessions take place every 2 weeks and last approximately 30 minutes. During the weeks you do not meet with Kim, you will have access to her via her office hours Monday through Thursday 8 am to 8 pm EST. 

What’s the difference between a dietitian and a nutritionist?

Many people think the terms “dietitian” and “nutritionist” mean the same thing. Well, let me be the first to tell you–they don’t. In fact, all dietitians are nutritionists, but not all nutritionists are dietitians. Dietitians are food and nutrition experts that have gone through extensive educational training and have passed a national exam that qualifies them to provide individualized nutrition care. On the other hand, the term “nutritionist” (in the United States) can be applied to anyone who gives nutrition advice. This being the case, a nutritionist is not regulated by federal or state law, or any jurisdiction. Additionally, and very importantly, a nutritionist may or may not have a formal education.

Which one is right for you?

The answer to that question depends on you. What kind of results are you seeking? If you’re looking for someone to provide you with evidenced-based nutrition counseling, then you may want to lean towards seeing a dietitian. Otherwise, you may be vulnerable to less substantiated opinions and reasoning, which may or may not be beneficial to your overall health.
